Recipe 13: CHICKEN CHAPLUPAS (main dish)
My mom got the recipe from her and has made these on many occasions. People cant help but like these. The wonderful flavor, the creaminess, the ooey gooey perfection...
This is an easy recipe, no slaving in the kitchen for hours on end. It is, however, high in fat and lots of cheese and sour cream and all the other good things in life that make the world go round. So be aware.
"C is for Chalupa thats just a sometimes food..."
